Hi Adam

Do you mean Profile picture or Avatar?

Anyway, I wonder if you have reduced the file size enough... when saving, choose the quality "Medium", or "Save for web" whichever you have.

Hi Adam

I've just had a look at your current attempt. You can't do it as a link.

Save the re-sized picture to your hard drive, then upload from there via the Edit Profile Picture option in Control Panel.

Hope this helps.

Hi LL

The help from Moose should see you right now. Prior to your posts this evening though you would have been caught up in the New User Restrictions, which meant that you couldn't have an avatar until you had 10 forum posts.

If the ability to upload an Avatar still isn't there, just wait a little for the system to catch up.

It was the new user restrictions that were foiling my attempts to upload an avatar. Thanks for the help.
